Hopefully, you found someone to better assist you. Great history is a plus however your bad credit might be something you need to push to get most landlords, property managers to look past. Try offering twice the deposit.. Let me know if you're still struggling I might be able to help depending on your employment/ criminal record.

Most property management companies will look at:
Rental history
Credit history

Your odds of renting a home are very good if everything is in good standing other than credit. If all else fails offer a refundable double security deposit. To save yourself time and to give yourself the best shot go ahead and fill out your lease application, gather your 2 most recent paystubs and run enlarged color copies of your drivers license. If you find a house you can submit your application with your Realtor on the spot and can expect a quicker answer. Make sure all phone numbers for previous employers and landlords are accurate. Your Realtor can also contact the property owner or agent, explain your credit position and make sure the application fee and your time is worth the effort.

There is not much in this area at $1000 or less any more.
Prices have just gone up so much due to high demand.

If you have bad credit, you will need to do something to make an owner interested in you.
Something like offering to pay 2 or 3 times the normal deposit.

Otherwise it will be very rough going in my opinion.

Credit shows your willingness and ability to pay your obligations, so with bad credit, you're asking an owner to take on risk and you may likely have to pay them for taking on that risk in today's market.
